I have been sitting back and watching the hundreds of messages about George. When I first met him and started dating him he was just a nice boy from Lowertown nothing actually standing out about his life,...he would be flabbergasted at the amount of wonderful heartfelt notes about him and his wonderful personality. He is a Rockstar in personality and love for those he cares about.He would be truly amazed and so very thankful.Everyone that had the pleasure to meet him couldn't help but enjoy him.He served his country and we couldn't be more thankful. Again... it just actually is so rewarding to him the amount of people are responding to this sad passing of Dear George.I am sure he is enjoying Heaven and all the benefits it affords.I have 2 wonderful,caring,loving children and am so overwhelmed by them and their love for their dad.He so deserves it.A part of my heart will always remain his and the life we shared. God please take care of this most precious man.

Alyssa, Ian and families. Mike and I are so sorry for the loss of your Dad. We have known George for many years from all of us being from Lowertown. Mike worked with him for at least 20 years at Harrison Radiator . He was a very hard worker. He loved his family more than life itself! You will always be in our thoughts and prayers❤
